Australian leading lady Suzie Mathers is set to join the West End production of WICKED as Glinda in September this year.
Suzie began her WICKED journey with the show as an off stage vocal swing on the Australian production when it premiered in Melbourne in 2008 before taking over the role of Glinda for the 2011 Asian tour. She then reprised the role in 2015 for the Brisbane and Perth seasons in the 10th Anniversary Australian tour.
Executive Producer (UK) Michael McCabe said: “We very much look forward to welcoming Suzie Mathers to the London company of WICKED in September alongside the incredible Rachel Tucker, who returns to the West End production following her triumphant engagement as Elphaba on Broadway. Suzie was a member of the original Australian cast of WICKED and went on to play Glinda to great acclaim in Singapore, South Korea, New Zealand, the Philippines and on the most recent Australian tour. We are all delighted that these two superbly talented actors will join us in London to lead an amazing new cast through the 10th birthday celebrations at the Apollo Victoria Theatre later this year”.
Mathers joins the production in time to celebrate WICKED’s 10th birthday celebrations in London on Tuesday 27 September at the Apollo Victoria Theatre.
